“This acai bowl restaurant is a tiny spot located in the bustling area Wan Chai. They offer a selection of acai bowls, which they will happily serve in your own container if you bring it, as well as a range of toppings from nut butter through to fruit, nuts, seeds, superfoods and granola. They have bowls with added plant based protein and you even get rewarded if you do squats, 30 reps means free almond butter! They get bonus points for the owner being so damn lovely.”

Opening Hours: Monday — Closed; Tuesday — Friday 8:30am — 7pm

Pure Veggie House

“This was one of the highlights of my foodie experiences in Hong Kong, a 100% vegan dim sum and traditional cantonese restaurant. It was so authentic and all the other customers were locals, which is an indicator that it is a good spot! The food was delicious with highlights including the flat noodles, the truffle mushroom dim sum and the BBQ steamed buns.” 

Address: 3/F Coda Plaza, 51 Garden Road. Central 
Opening Hours: 11am – 10.30pm daily


Grassroots Pantry

“This restaurant is super hyped up. but for a good reason. The menu again is 98% vegan and there is a huge focus on sustainability, which I am of course a big fan of. The food is a mix of traditional cantonese with some international inspiration thrown in. They know how to do some epic things with mushrooms and the highlight is definitely the chicken bites, which genuinely taste like nuggets – they blew my mind.  I would have loved to have come back for breakfast as they serve up buddha bowls, granola bowls and a whole host of other tasty treats.”

Address: 108 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Central
Opening Hours: 9am – 11pm daily (closed 3pm – 5.30pm Monday – Wednesday)

“This is another great spot for dim sum, they offer veggie and vegan afternoon tea as well as a selection of veggie and vegan dim sum. I loved the veggie dumplings! Plus the setting is super nice, with traditional decor and plush chairs.”

Address: Ground Floor, The K.S. Lo Gallery, Hong Kong Park, Admiralty
Opening Hours: 10am – 8pm daily (until 9pm on Saturday)



“This popular lunch spot has a laid back hippie vibe, with a focus on sustainability. The menu is 98% vegan and consists of their signature flatbreads, huge leafy salads, burgers, cold pressed juices and sweet treats. The falafel flatbread is the bomb, I would have loved to have gone back to give the chickpea salad and the energy balls a taste!”

Address:  92 Wellington Street, Central
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm daily


Po Lin Monastery

Po Lin Monastery Vegetarian Kitchen

“This traditional local canteen style restaurant is located inside the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island. It serves vegan Buddhist food and is full of locals and monks, I think we were the only Westerners in there! It is an incredible authentic experience and the lemon “chicken” made from tofu is divine.”

Address:  Po Lin Monastery, Ngong Ping Road, Ngong Ping
Opening Hours: 9am – 6pm daily
